Business transactions need thorough attention

Mergers and acquisitions are typically highly complex business transactions, which could involve the sale, purchase or merger of all or part of a business. These transactions often involve a number of professionals, such as lawyers, accountants and bankers, in addition to the business owners themselves and any investors.  Because mergers and acquisitions often involve the sale or purchase of a publicly-traded company and because these transactions may implicate federal antitrust laws, they require the skill and assistance of a knowledgeable mergers and acquisitions attorney.

Mergers and acquisitions can take many forms, from an outright purchase of another company to strategic alliances, asset-sharing agreements, complex licensing deals and asset sale transactions.  They often require financing to complete the transaction, making it all the more important to have an experienced business attorney who understands every aspect of mergers and acquisitions.law

As an experienced mergers and acquisitions attorney, I analyze each aspect of a proposed merger or acquisition to make sure that it is legally sound and advisable from a business standpoint.  This involves performing due diligence, identifying potential problems and hidden costs, evaluating cash flow, obtaining information regarding employees, assisting with legal and regulatory compliance, preparing the necessary corporate governance documentation, drafting and negotiating the agreements, and obtaining the necessary approvals. Throughout the process, I provide insightful, strategic legal advice to help my clients achieve their goals through the merger or acquisition.
